These are the client websites I’ve created to date. I look forward to sharing each new one with you. Click on the sites pictured in the monitors below to visit each one.
There are many options available for a website, and having a self-hosted WordPress site is one. That’s what I use, and since the WordPress platform now accounts for almost 75 million sites on the web, I’d say it’s a very good choice.
But a new or updated site can be a daunting proposition. You start thinking about all the decisions that have to be made, your head starts to hurt and you think, ugh, maybe later.
What I do is meet with you to discuss your needs, find out what you want your site to be able to do for you and for your customers, and then I research the many design options available to come up with one that’s a fit for your business. It’s a big piece of the puzzle, and since I’m the one who’ll be working with the site, I make sure it’s going to work well for both of us. In fact, in most cases, I’ve already narrowed down the options before we even meet and it’s not long before I have something that I’m confident will have you excited.
Photos play a huge role on any website, and good photos make a big difference. You want people to spend time on your site and high quality photos definitely help with that. But getting photos done can be a hassle, I know. That’s why it makes even more sense to have me do your site: I can do the photos, too. Budda-bing, budda-boom.
Also, with my WordPress sites, you can you add your own content and add news or blog updates whenever you like, if you want to. Just like on Facebook or any other social media platform. And, of course, you can share your updates to your other social media channels. Then, when people click on your posts, they’re taken to the update on your site. I show you how to do all of that.
If you’d like to discuss your website needs, please don’t hesitate to Contact Me to see if I can help.
And on my Testimonials page, you can read the really nice things some of my awesome clients have written about my services. Did I mention that my clients are awesome?
This is the brand new website for Kaitlyn Shular that I had the privilege to create for her. Kaitlyn is a very talented designer, co-owner of a custom cabinet company here in Port Elgin, and also now a Real Estate agent.
It was a challenge to incorporate all three businesses into one website, but I think we pulled it off. Check it out the site and be sure to contact Kaitlyn for your interior design, custom cabinets, and real estate needs.
I’ve known Steve Dennison for many years, and I’ve photographed quite a few of his custom homes. When he decided to change up his website, he called me to see if I was interested and I jumped at the opportunity because I knew he wanted a classy site that’s driven by large images. Since I love photographing his homes, it was a natural.
Dennison Homes is a company that prides itself on the superior quality of their work. Their craftsmanship stands the test of time and Steve wanted a website that reflects this. Have a look at the site yourself and hopefully you’ll agree that we accomplished exactly that. We’ll continue adding new projects to the Portfolio section, and when there’s news to share, we’ll update the blog. In the meantime, if you’re considering building a new home or cottage, or if your current one needs an update, you should contact Steve and his team at Dennison Homes.
The new Casual Corners site is a fun, youth-oriented one that reflects the store’s client base. It has a Featured Product section, plus a Shop page. But for now it’s an enquiry-based one, where you can contact the store directly about products in the shop. We’ll be adding the online purchasing option soon, and then customers will be able to order and pay for products directly from the site.
We did a few photo shoots for the site, with more to come. Their co-op student, David, has been shooting videos, too, and they’re posted in the Blog.
This will be a fast-moving site with updates and changes happening frequently, so check back in to see what’s happening.
The Port Elgin Super 8 site involved a lot of customization and I’m very pleased with how it turned out. I’ve worked with Jennifer, Tom and Trevor for quite a few years, and taken a lot of photos of the rooms and other parts of the property.
We had to take new photos of the recently-renovated rooms, of course, and each is located on their own page with descriptions and categorized. It’s a visually strong site because photos are what potential customers want to see.
K&S Custom is a fun website that reflects the playful nature of the cakes & cupcakes they create. Sarah & Kelly were great to work with and their new website is a testament to their desire to put a smile on their customers’ faces, and a tickle in their tummies!
Fitness Funatics is a gritty, tough-looking website that kicks butt! Shelley wanted a site that made it clear they take seriously their goal of “Building Better Bodies!” and “Doing it Right!”.
We shot a ton of original photography specifically for the site, so there was a lot of planning involved. Shelley & her team were always ready & willing to participate, as were her clients for photos of various classes. Just a blast to work with the whole group at Fitness Funatics.
Shoreline Stone & Garden Centre’s website features a product section that will eventually be an online store where customers can order product directly from the site. For now, though, I’ve disabled that function until they’re ready to do the online transactions. We should be activating the online store in the new year and I look forward to helping Brandon and his staff set that up.
DRW Appraisals is a clean, simple site. Darren wanted something that shows potential clients what he and his team offer. We added a custom Appraisal Request Form that clients can fill out with all the required information for a full appraisal report.
The School of Grace site is the home of Sheila Gibbon’s non-profit Christian Primary School in Haiti. Sheila started the school with a group of volunteers there last year, and she has raised 100% of the funds for the school so that the children’s families do not have to pay. The website is a way for her to continue with her fundraising efforts, and I’ve added a donation feature that links to Paypal for those who wish to help with an online donation.
Imageport is my own website, of course. I cut my teeth on self-hosted WordPress sites by creating my own first, then moved on to client sites.
I’m getting ready to start working on a new site for myself after 2 years with this current one. I’ll be using a new site design system that I recently upgraded to and I’m excited to try it out. More of a drag-and-drop kind of format that should be fun to work with. Looking forward to sharing mine and other new client sites with you soon.
